Whiskey: Sazerac 18 Year Rye Whiskey , 2011 Antique Collection Release
Distillery: Buffalo Trace Distillery, Frankfort, Kentucky
Age: 18 years
Proof: 90 Proof, 45% ABV
Color: Medium amber
Nose: With considerable age for a rye whiskey, this rye has a note between a vibrant fresh rye and a barrel aged . The aroma seems to waiver back and forth with multiple layers of spice.
Taste: A refined rye with decent complexity. Starts out fruit-laced and sour and builds up with tingly and lively characteristic. A playful quality complimented by backnotes of oak. Medium sweet and bing cherry on mid-palette. Soft mouthfeel.
Finish: Mellow with medium to long finish.
